Let me start by saying Pinterest is the best idea ever! I love it and get so many of my ideas there, some are near exact duplicates but most I give my own twist, which is what I did with these word blocks and outdoor posts.
I made a lot of my crafts for a Christmas Fair which myself and a friend of my organized as a fundraiser in our small town, I was happy that it went over very well, raised a nice sum of money for the volunteer fire department, and my own sales of crafts and merchandise from my small home-based business made a significant profit of as well, which was a great financial help for this single Mom of 2 when Christmas shopping!

My favourite Christmas crafts are centrepieces and home decor. I like to use things around the house that we have no use for and turn them into something beautiful, which is what I did when making this centrepiece.
This fireplace centerpiece was a birdhouse that my son had made years before at school but hadn't finished it, as well as an old set of wooden candle sticks that I found at goodwill for 50 cents!! (Another love of mine- goodwill and yard sale shopping for makeoever projects, but I will get into that another time.)
Since the holidays I haven't done any crafting. I have been dealing with a "down plase" of my bipolar and the energy just hasn't been there. However, I am feeling much better now and plan to start crafting again real soon, and I will, of course, post each and other one.
Until next time...
